The Kilung Foundation was founded in 1998 by His Eminence Kilung Jigme Rinpoche, a well-known Buddhist teacher and traditional lama.
Rinpoche was recognized as the fifth reincarnation of H. Jigme Ngostar Gyatso as a young boy, during China’s Cultural Revolution of the late 1960s.
The cost is less than 0 per student a month, but it still adds up!
We are actively seeking benefactors and supporters to fund the ongoing costs of these two schools.
Also in November 2014, the Kilung Children’s School launched a new boarding school with 30 eager young boys from the local community, ages eight to 12.
The Kilung Children’s School is housed in the newly renovated shedra building, and provides a strong Tibetan education as an alternative to no school, or a government school in the distant town.
As a teenager he completed a traditional three-year retreat, and then began his life’s work of restoring Kilung Monastery, the central monastery of his lineage, and also preserving the Tibetan spiritual traditions and nomad culture of his community.This will provide a market outlet for milk produced by nomads’ animals, and a source of livelihood for other nomads who have lost their herds.These steps are important to the local people, because the fabric of life is changing rapidly in Dzachuka.Access to Tibetan education in Tibet is limited, and the ability of people to travel to attend Indian and Nepali educational institutions is being increasingly restricted.
Meanwhile Chinese regulations managing pasturelands are curtailing traditional nomad culture, and making it hard for people to continue traditional lifestyles.
With his education he will be better able to function in modern society and the local economy.
